As I mentioned we are in the midst of planning our Summer Road Trip down the West Coast of America. In true Fabulous Times style this mostly involves watching our favourite road trip movies and oogleing at potential outfit choices online. Having watched a number of road trip movies it has become ever more apparent that the choice of eyewear maketh the style icon. If you’re heading away this summer on a road trip or vacation be sure to choose wisely and remember to enjoy yourself.
Every savvy shopper worth their salt knows that tkmaxx have the greatest selection of designer sunglasses at reasonable prices meaning you’ll still have enough in your budget for a couple of cocktails on your vacation.
Patricia Arquette in True Romance. O.K so not strictly a road movie but they do spend quite a bit of time in the car looking cool(!) Arquettes character Alabama Whitman rocks her iconic baby blue coloured frames throughout the movie. These Blue Retro Style Sunglasses by Calvin Klein mean the crazy and cool style of Alabama Whitman is just a click away. Did I mention they’re only £19.99.
You know I mentioned that Thelma & Louise are way up our radar for iconic road trip style inspiration, well that goes for eyewear too. Pre-murder Louise wears some enviable cats eye sunglasses. I have uh-hum my sights firmly set on these Valentino Cats Eye Tortoise Shell Sunglasses.
Now, for the wild card. If you’ve ever seen Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas it’s impossible to watch without imagining what it would be like to be Johnny Depp in his Hawaiian Shirt, Aviator sunglasses biting on his ultra cool cigarette holder driving in his drop top into Las Vegas. When I saw these Manish Arora Brown Tortoise Effect Aviators they got me thinking….
Whether you’re into retro inspired frames, classic movie star oversized bins or favour a bit of bling-bling you’re bound to find a pair of Designer Sunglasses to suit at tkmaxx. The prices are incredible, the variety is vast and the quality unquestionable.
